Great board by a reputable manufacturer

Pros

Awesome styling
Command Center is surprisingly good giving stable overclocks
BIOS is very simple to use
M.2 Shield

Cons
"RGB LEDs" are only 7 colours but that's only nitpicking
Wish they would have made a colour wheel with the whole 16.8 million colour options
Summary
I bought this board from a local shop and he had no bad experiences with MSI. I steered away from ASUS after hearing about other's peoples horrid experiences with them if they needed to RMA or had a problem and called in. I had a Gigabyte board before this but sold it due to preference and my two 1070 G1 Gaming cards from them had buzzing under heavy load (from a brand spanking new card as well). So that ended up putting me off with Gigabyte even thought I know they still make good boards. Lets just hope I have no problems with this board!

quirky?

Pros

fast
Cons
sounds sucks. overall needs lots of tweaking?
Summary
Hardware aside, it will run each and every time but!
w/ kaby i5 7600k, 16GB kingston hyperx, evga 1060, sata ssd, 3 monitors using dp/dvi/hdmi. BIOS shows E7A781MA.120 12/01/2016
Overall it's quirky, but fast.
Video: Out of the box, w/ all monitors connected, both installs of windows defaults to only working on the small monitor. Disconnecting the others and just the ROG it gets no signal. Only when the 1060 is installed it now defaults to the ROG and all 3 work. To add: the active window defaults a lot to my tv so I constantly have to turn it on...and yes, the prior closed window was not on the tv. That gets old fast!
Sound: Very frustrating! This nahimic 2 software, which changes between gaming and music/virtual sound seems cranky and I have re-imaged cause of sound. I use 2 sound systems, one w/ optical, one w/ 3x 4mm 5.1 surround and the 3x 4mm started sounding like it was cutting out after working fine for weeks, optical was fine. Regardless, on a reboot the crap always, always defaults to some other playback device I don't use! A re-image seems to fix this, for now! POS!
The RGB lighting only works via a phone app? Am I missing something here. On the first install it defaulted to red, on the 2nd its now white and what seems to be a f'ing chore to search, find and change. STUPID that's it's not easy!
Guess I gotta update  the bios and hope sh*t gets better! But once I have it running correctly? Butter!
3 outta 5!

Calmer heads prevailed? The gaming app is needed to config the RBG.
